, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker boehner says he won't negotiate with him and president obama seemed implacable on his positions. >> back to me, i think there is going to have to be a shift in how obama handles the hill. you know, when presidents win re-election, the air on top of mt. olympus is scbfl feels great. but it's very thin and it leads to you do things that can appear arrogant. that affects your approval rating and then your agenda can't get through. that's what has happened in second terms with presidents in america. unless obama can show the american people, on the big issues, like the budget and immigration and what he is talking about with guns, he can work with the republicans. let me ask you a question, can you name the one bipartisan accomplishment of president obama? >> yeah, it's called getting re-elected. >> okay! the fact is, if you look at where the country is today, the clear majority of americans, larger percentage of americans voted for obama than past presidents. but in terms of policy, i am not going to say it
harder under speaker boehner who has said -- and i quote -- "i don't feel comfortable scheduling any controversial legislation unless i know we have the votes on our side first." which sounds like he's saying he has to be able to produce a majority of the house out of just the republican caucus before bringing a bill. but whether it's the original hastert rule requiring a majority of the majority before they'll even bring a bill to the floor or what appears to be the boehner rule that they have to have the votes on our side first -- end quote -- it is a rule of obstruction. there are somewhere between 50 and 60 members of the house republican tea party caucus and a whole bunch more house republicans who are scared of the tea party and scared of what might happen to them if they get a tea party primary challenger. so getting a majority of his party together for anything reasonable is a challenge for speaker boehner. house republicans could not get a majority of their conference to support a highway bill. so the hastert rule kicked in, and there was no house highway bill. none. couldn'
the nation's children? but speaker boehner wasn't finished because while he'd started with denial, he finished with delusion. >> and so we're expecting here over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party, and le me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> mr. speaker, if you cannot agree with anything that was said at the inauguration on monday, then it won't be the president who pushes you into the dust bin of history. it will be the people. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >> the jackals attack hillary. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. is this the day of the jackals? is this the day in january of 2013 that the right decided to go all out attacking hillary clinton? a pair of senators jabbering nonsense at her yesterday. who shot the starting pistol? who said this person is fair game? that she's the new valerie wilson, the new target of all their angry venen a

. but his view-- particularly on john boehner-- is that boehner cannot deliver a deal. he can do all the schmoozing he wants but when john boehner, the house speaker, goes back to his caucus they are driven and ruled by imperatives that are impervious to schmoozing and this that's basically their nstituents at home and therefore if boehner can't help him make a deal he has to find some other kind of leverage and that comes from the outside which is why in the inaugural address today the president talked about voters and said we have to do it not through our votes but our voices that's why he's organizing america for action, to try and build pressure from the outside that will somehow work on lawmakers. he's tried that before but they're recommitted it-to-it now that's given up on dealing with congress directly. >> if you took the 2001 most influeial peop in washington 2000 of them if you them in a room and ask them to chat about the topics, the president's lack of willingness to reach out to congress very much, his lack of feel for the importance of relationships, 2,000 of the people

republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him
. here is how speaker john boehner summed it up today. >> you know, the premise here is pretty simple. it says that there should be no long-term increase in the debt limit until there is a long-term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> and now the democrat-controlled senate hasn't really passed a budget resolution during the obama administration ever. but even before the house approved the new -- no budget, no pay measure. harry reid said he would bring it up and intends to pass it it watch. >> but to spare the middle class another knockdown, drag out fight we're going to proceed to work on this legislation and get it out of here as quickly as we can. >> i also want to give credit where credit is due. and i thank speaker boehner for his leadership in diffusing a fight over the debt ceiling debate. >> 86 house democrats went along with boehner in the bill. 33 republicans opposed it as insufficiently conservative, shep? >> shepard: this doesn't stop the fight though, carl. it just puts it off for a while, right? >> yeah, in the short-term it did i investigators
legislation, he opposed don't ask/don't tell and the new start treaty. no one is sure how speaker boehner proceeds, does he violate the so-called hastert rule again? by the way, as for what the president does tomorrow, don't expect specific legislation. there was some talk that they might do that. i'm told that the congressional hispanic caucus suggested to the white house that that was not necessary, that they would like to see the senate see how this group of eight works before the white house gets in with details on their own legislation. we'll see what happens tomorrow. moving on, it was a case where the picture meant a lot more than the words themselves. sunday on "60 minutes eye," two former rivals sat down for an interview which would have been improbable eight years ago and talked about their relationship today. >> i consider hillary a close friend. >> very warm, close. i think there's a sense of understanding that sometimes doesn't even take words. >> friendships involve a sense of trust and being in the foxhole together and that emerged during the course of months when we were m
that's breaking congress, you have speaker boehner that can't control his own caucus. i think when you see that sort of extremism in congress and nothing moving forward, i think it's a unique time and calls for unique measures. >> say something. >> no. i'm always -- >> hard to argue with that. >> margaret, do you see republicans -- how do you see republicans playing this? >> here's what's fascinating. there's the hastert rule, right? which boehner shunned two times now. you have to get the majority of the coalition to go along with the bill or somehow eroding away the power base. twice now boehner with sandy and then the fiscal cliff deal has had -- depended on a majority of democrats and reasonable edge of the opposition, reasonable amount of republicans to go along with it. can this sustain itself? that is barack obama's best hope of a legacy piece in the second term. >> everybody stand by because we have some important news coming up. >> let me guess, band related. >> band related. not only the marching band, we have rock n roll. we have solid rock n roll. also, listening to grambli
. he kind of cleaned john boehner squat in terms of taxes and revenues. it was all tax increases. $15 million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew that in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions and perhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff tal
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
is on display in the chair of the rnc chair in the office of the rnc chair. john boehner gave a talk to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college football coach lou holtz. >> about 9:30 i get this text, the country is overwith. we're not doing this again. i already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he came in to speak to our 34 new members. and before he went over to talk to them, he came to my office. he is moaning and groaning. i said, lou, would you stop? we're americans. we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> and that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now for a look at the national weather, here is bill karins with the forecast. it's cold, right? >> lou holtz isn't happy all that's come out either. here's what we're dealing with out there this morning. snow has made its presence in the washington, d.c. area. we haven't had a lot over this winter
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,
movement here. that rhetoric is going to get even more rancid and then john boehner is going to have to decide whether he's going to allow a vote on a bill like this on the floor of the house even if a majority of his caucus is against it. the tea party core of the republican party is not buying this. >> victoria, to professor shrum's point, steve king of iowa tweeted even before the press conference had fn finished, some senators and representatives will soon announce how they plan to pardon law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. jo and just a couple weeks ago, steve king reintroduced his legislation to amend the 14th amendment to keep out what he calls anchor babies. there are definitely the steve kings in the world, but what we see is a growing coalition in the republican party. business has always been supportive of immigration but we also see that the evangelical wing of the republican party coming to the support of immigration. we know that latinos are the fastest growing segment of the evangelical movement, and most recently we're adding on police enfo
to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often and frame them in ways that americans can understand. and you have house republicans trying to play catch-up. chris: let me go back on this question four years ago. remember when lincoln came into office they were already plotting against him. he had to come in through baltimore and hide at the willard. this president had to come in against mitch mcconnell, the republican leader, saying my number-one goal in life is to get rid of this president. >> and he failed. so i think it's different in some ways and not different in others. i think we are still going to see a very large portion of the republican caucus that believes deeply in what they believe in. that have districts at home that will support them very strongly ag
default. john boehner said to show the american people that it would move to balance the budget. >> they understand you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. we're committed to doing a budget on the house side. a budget that will balance over the next ten years. it's time for the senate and the president to show the american people how they're willing to balance a budget over the next ten years. >> the bill now goes to the senate where it's expected to pass and be approved by the white house. republicans will continue to push the government to review social security spending. the bill urges congress to compile an outline of the 2014 budget by mid-april. more business headlin next heres another checon maets. >>> u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has suggested islamist militants may be behind separate attacks in north africa. she talked about the hostage taking last week of workers at a gas plant in algeria. clinton said algerian government officials have told their counterparts in washington that some of the islamist militants may have been involved in another
